    From the CrossFit BrandX forums:
    Today, everyone is a Big Dawg. If you are unfamiliar with the lift be smart, start light and stay light to work on your technique.

    I would add that if you don’t have a subscription to the CrossFit Journal (and really you should, it’s well worth it at $25/year for access to the entire archives), you can also check out a bunch of different Olympic lifting videos on crossfit.com for free right here:

    And remember, today’s when you’ll want to wear weightlifting shoes if you’ve got ‘em (or at least Converse Chuck Taylors, NOT squishy, thick-bottomed sneakers–burn those). Wondering why? Read this:

    It was awesome meeting Sveinbjorn Sveinbjornsson today. That guy is a tank.

  • Adam R

    I watched some videos of Naim Suleymanoglu today for technique and inspiration. He and I weigh the same, about 130. His career best clean is 418, I was happy to get my last set of three at 135.

    this was definitely a learning experience that i need to work on my front squat so that i dont fold like a pancake when i get to 155

    this was a lot of fun. hard as hell. I had a few decent cleans mixed in with some really bad ones. still haven’t done a heavy front squat wod yet so this was a little scary and awkward. one month in!
